I recently got amazon's kindle fire tablet for my 19th birthday a few days ago and noticed neither have apps in the amazon app store and was wondering if there will be an app for the kindle fire soon? Please help me contact the people who make the apps and whoever owns this site so I can find out if no one else here knows if there will be! I really would like to see apps of them made for the kindle fire. I noticed that there are apps on the apple app stores, but none in the amazon app store, so I wonder if this will be possible hmmm?
No. I think the website is usable in the Amazon Kindle Fire, but I was told that the Flashcard Stacks do not display on the Review page. However you should be able to click the due/new/restudy buttons.
As for native Apps, I'm sorry, no. I'm just one guy, I can't develop native Apps for Kindle and iOS on top of the website.
Unfortunately there are many, many "mobile" devices, with different resolutions. I'd have to design for the smallest one, and that would limit greatly how I can layout the flashcard page. I have some features planned with dictionary integration and honestly I have no idea where I would fit those on a small screen.
I don't know, what do you think? The problem is this is a very blurry and very vague area to work on for me. I have no idea exactly what people mean when they want to use this site on a mobile phone, what they expect out of it, or even what exactly isn't working, since technically the better mobile phone these days have a fully capable browser (ie. Safari on iPhone), which should run the site correctly.
The main issue here, is I myself, as you can guess, have zero interest in mobile phone, and so I don't have any experience myself of what isn't working in terms of usability. Using an emulator unfortunately doesn't help much since I am not holding a phone, and I am clicking with a mouse. The emulator is mostly for debugging in case the page doesn't run, and testing how the mobile stylesheet works on the smaller screen estate.
If I recall I did make some fixes for Android with an emulator, after someone posted a clear feedback with a specific problem.
The website is no longer listed on the Chrome Web Store. I was getting disheartened by the unfair ratings and the rather poor comments that people left in there. The typical user visiting Chrome Web Store is expecting an offline capable app designed for their tablet or phone. However from my perspective, Chrome Web Store allowed and invited people to publish web apps. Also clearly from many of the comments they were looking for some "easy learn Japanese" apps. On further thought rather than stressing about it I figured this wasn't really helping the site, and removed it to spend that time doing more useful things for the site.
EDIT: In plain english: there never was a RevTK "app" on Chrome Web Store, just a listing of the website, and a way to add a nice app icon to the Chrome browser's "Apps" tab.
I think what most people are talking about when they talk about having a mobile site is not about browser compatibility but about the layout. While most mobile devices will support most websites, often the size of a page will mean tiny text and controls and a lot of resizing and scrolling around in order to use it.
The review page on this site is already pretty minimalist and is fairly usable on my device, though the keyword and buttons are rather small. Just increasing the size of the keyword text and buttons would probably make it a lot more mobile-friendly.
